Progress at Dubai World Central (DWC) - the massive 140 square kilometre urban aviation community under construction in Jebel Ali - has received a boost due to its recent tie-up with Dubai Municipality's state-of-the-art Geographical Information Systems (GIS) department to provide the latest e-mapping technology.

Real time aerial and satellite images along with global positioning (GPS) coordinates will enable DWC staff and contractors to minutely identify utility services, urban land plans and land use blueprints within this massive development centred around Dubai World Central International Airport (JXB) - scheduled to be the world's largest.

Commenting on the initiative HH Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum, Chairman, Dubai Aviation Corporation - Dubai World Central, Government of Dubai, said, "In keeping with the complete strategic organisation of government resources and coordination of all Dubai Government departments, in line with the Dubai Strategic Plan 2015, Dubai Municipality's e-MAP project for DWC is a testament to how government departments can work closely together.

"Dubai Municipality's e-MAP gateway, in providing GPS coordinates of all DWC sites, will allow the huge Dubai World Central project to be completed in accordance with the latest global positioning systems technologies," said Hussein Lootah, Deputy Director General of Dubai Municipality.

The GIS department will host all geographical data for DWC on dedicated high performance servers which allow data access using the latest data retrieval technology, in addition to providing satellite images.

"The e-Map project will provide geographical data for DWC through a dedicated e-gate, available around the clock to pre-verified DWC staff with detailed information of land registration and document extraction.

In addition, client relations management forms can be accessed to provide customers and tenants with up-to-date real time information," said Mohammed Al Zaffin, Director of GIS Centre, Dubai Municipality.

Currently, JXB'x first runway is nearing completion in addition to work underway on the cargo terminal, passenger terminal, Dubai Logistics City Head Quarters and Office Park, roads and other infrastructure.
